    The beam

    Here's some pics of my rear that i was buggering about with the night before PV last weekend.

    A few of the AOCers at PV may have seen it and i know a few people were dubious about how much red would be on show, so see what you think. Obvisously i've cleaned the hubs, deflectors, calipers and carriers up a bit too and gicen them a lick of paint to match the front:





    I know it's not to everyone's taste, but neither is the rest of my car. But i like it, so there :P

    Hubs and deflectors are too much imo, the rear beam and the calipers would of looked just right.

    TBH i agree with you all. I'm not 100% keen on the deflectors and brake centres. I was hoping it would grow on me. There's time yet

    No harm in painting them black again dave. At least you have tried something different, not the end of the world

    I had decided(ish) on some new wheels, and they were gonna come out of this month's wedge of overtime i'll be getting.

    But after so many people commented on the interior (or lack of) at the weekend it gave me a kick up the ass, and made me see that's the first thing that needs sorting.

    So i've just bought the Alpine sat nav and i'm gonna start laying the cables for my install so i can get some carpet down.
